We stopped by happenstance as we were traveling north. So glad we did! The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Good southern food and hospitality. Would certainly stop thru again given the occasion!

Meal selections are made in a cafeteria-style line. They have some excellent southern dishes that I really cannot get back home in Rhode Island, so it was a big treat eating there. The place was clean, homey, and comfortable but not at all fancy and...More

After visiting the tobacco museum, we stopped at Storming Normans for lunch. We had the pork bbq and my wife had the fried chicken. Both were very good and I have to say it was as good of Eastern bbq that I have had. Plenty...More

Stopped in while traveling on I95. BBQ was cooked just right. Not greasy or fatty. Moist with just enough vinegar flavor. Boiled potatoes, black eyed peas and brunswick stew equally good as well. Stop in and see for yourself!

We're so tired of eating at the franchise restaurants along the highway! We were delighted to find Stormin' Norman's in Kenly, NC. BBQ was tasty, although there wasn't any sauce. Fried chicken was good. Sides were southern traditional-- collard greens, green beans, black eyed peas,...More
